I've mentioned this before, more than once actually. I work for international medical device company, and the trend in my corner of the world is to go paperless.
We now route proofs of brochures, sell sheets and posters by PDF. We now request even smaller quantities from our vendor, or use local shops to fulfill on-demand rather than stockpile.
I print very few banners on my 9800, and now have switched what we call "digital posters", (You can't add a sound byte to a banner). You can deliver a finished product by yousendit vs. fedex - guess which one is cheaper and quicker?
Some things haven't changed, yet. I still setup and shoot as before, and post process as usual. What we do with the file afterward is a different thing, and if it's not your thing today, it will be that way tomorrow or you'll be flipping burgers to supplement.
